The budget-minded headset has great compatibility and sound that rivals its more expensive counterparts, but unfortunately fails to live up to Plantronics' namesake with a middling microphone. quote

The GameCom sounds good, but fans of earth-shaking bass might find it a little too even to rock their world. The trade off, however, is a joyous lack of ear-splitting highs and ugly, blown-out lows. We can live with that.
